It Girl of the Month: Gillian Zinser (June Edition)

Who she is: It’s hard to find biographical info about Gillian since she’s surfing just below the radar, but we feel she’s due for a break out hit soon and deserves this month’s It Girl feature. What we do know is that, though she radiates a California surfer girl glow and stars in a show about Beverly Hills, Gillian is a native east coaster. She was born on Nov 4, 1985 in Washington DC and attended NYU for college, but moved to California to star as Ivy on 90210 (yes, a guilty pleasure of ours...). Her carefree style and tomboy demeanor, combined with her considerable acting talent, have won her fans here at The Stylist LA

What she does: Besides her extensive work doing quality television aimed at pre-teens, Gillian has been part of an impressive five films within the last two years. Her most recent project, Liars All, is slated to premiere in 2012, while the disturbing thriller, The Truth Below, won critics’ applause for its painfully honest views of humanity’s emotional unraveling.

Why we love her:  The first thing that strikes a viewer is the way Gillian epitomizes beach beauty, from her salt strewn beachy hair to her natural snub nose. For an East Coast girl, Zinser has perfected the ombre, effortless hair style worn by beach combers…after learning more about Gillian, we realize that her relaxed image is no act. A self claimed outdoorsy, low maintenance girl, Zinser seems equally at ease in front of the camera or carving down snowboard slopes.

On her style: The day version on-the-street Gillian favors concert shirts and worn-in jeans, but on the red carpet, this Hollywood newbie is a risk taker who redefines casual Los Angelino style. She turns to flowy bohemian fabrics and quirky patterns, clunky shoes matched with harem pants and a fistful of long chain necklaces. Long silhouettes and feathers. Gillian can take that orange 80s smoking jacket rescued from your uncle’s attic and rock the hell out of it. This beachy blonde wears whatever catches her fancy and looks great doing it.  We don’t need to tell you twice...but we will anyways: keep your eye on this new talent as she casually ascends the Hollywood A-List.

Outfit Perfection

The absolute perfect way to wear lace shorts.  Loving the combo of the bright top, and the lose fit.  The shoe and bag pairing are perfect as well.

There have been so many great outfits we have found lately!

Outfit Perfection

The shape of this dress is so different, and somehow the flowy shape manages to be flattering.  The cut-outs add an element that sets it apart from every other white dress. The simple bun, jewelry, and nude heels help give the whole outfit a carefree feel.

Bright Nails & An Overdose of Rings

Sounds about right.  Love looking down and being pleasantly surprised that nails are coral instead of their typical light pink (Essie Ballet Slipper).  And you all know how we feel about piling on the rings....

Happy 25th Bday to the Olsen Girls!

 If we could be any celebrity for a day (or live in any celebrity's closet) our choice would easily be one of the Olsen girls.  We are obsessed with their style, their accessory choices and we obsessively follow their career moves.  These two girls have so successfully evolved from child stars to well known and respected designers and we can't help but admire their work ethic.  Here are a few of our favorite pictures of them for their 25th bday...
